Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993



13:1The burden of Babylon which the son of Amoz saw:
13:2Lift up a banner on a bare mountain; make the voice rise to them; wave the hand that they may enter the gates of nobles.
13:3I have commanded My holy ones; I have also called My warriors for My anger, those who rejoice in My highness.
13:4The noise of a multitude in the mountains, as of a great people! A noise of tumult of the kingdoms of nations gathered together; Jehovah of Hosts is calling up an army for the battle.
13:5They come from a distant land, from the end of the heavens, Jehovah and the weapons of His wrath, to destroy all the land.
13:6Howl! For the day of Jehovah is at hand. It shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.
13:7On account of this all hands shall droop, and every heart of man shall melt;
13:8and they shall be afraid. Pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain like a woman bearing; they shall be amazed, each man to his neighbor; faces of flames shall be their faces.
13:9Behold, the day of Jehovah comes, cruel and with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land waste. And He shall destroy its sinners out of it.
13:10For the stars of the heavens and their constellations shall not give light; the sun shall be darkened in its going forth, and the moon shall not reflect its light.
13:11And I will visit evil on the world, and their iniquity on the wicked. And I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease; and I will humble the pride of tyrants.
13:12I will make a man more rare than fine gold; even a man more than the carvings of Ophir.
13:13So I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall move out of its place, in the wrath of Jehovah of Hosts, and in the day of His fierce anger.
13:14And it shall be as a gazelle driven away, and as a sheep no one gathers; each man shall look to his own people, and each one shall flee to his land.
13:15Everyone who is found shall be pierced through; yea, everyone who is sept away shall fall by the sword.
13:16And their children shall be dashed in pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be robbed, and their wives raped.
13:17Behold! I stir up the Medes against them, who shall not value silver. And they shall not delight in gold.
13:18And bows shall also smash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare sons.
13:19And Babylon, the glory of the kingdoms, the beauty of the pride of the Chaldeans, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
13:20It shall never be inhabited forever, nor shall it be lived in from generation to generation. And the Arabian shall not pitch a tent there, nor shall the shepherds make flocks lie down there.
13:21But the desert creatures shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of howling creatures; and daughters of ostriches shall dwell there; and he goats shall skip there.
13:22And hyenas shall cry along with his widows; and jackals in palaces of delight. Yea, her time to come is near, and her days shall not be prolonged.
